Fruit trees in your garden

Growing Your Own Fruit

Fruit trees are cheap, healthy, easy to handle and fun. Ours are UK grown and include eating, cooking and cider apples, eating and cooking cherries, damsons, medlars, pears, plums, quinces and many more. Our stock have strong root systems that establish rapidly and you can buy bareroot plants for delivery in winter and container grown for summer time planting...

UK Grown Trees from Ashridge Nurseries

Plant barerooted trees trees during winter and spring and container grown the rest of the year. Both are easily planted as can seen in our Planting Video. We carefully select virus free rootstocks and budwood (from our stock plants) before grafting, which is highly skilled work and so we are proud of the quality we produce. All are available as one year old maidens (a maiden tree is the basic "building block" from which all fruit shapes are produced).

You can also find most of our varieties as ready pruned two year old trees as well; generally as bushes and/or half-standards but those that are suitable are also grown as cordons. Ashridge Nurseries grows over 130 varieties of fruit for sale online; these are chosen to provide a range of old and new, suitable for all uses, local climates and garden locations.

Rootstocks can cause some confusion so you can see the ones we use below. In simple terms a rootstock controls the eventual size of your tree. A Bramley apple on a vigorous rootstock is a lot bigger than a Bramley on a dwarfing rootstock although the apples are the same. If you are interested you can read more about Rootstocks here.
